Should I get the Cossack?

So I have 44 guineas from the RN event, but I also got the Haida from a crate.  I am currently at the Lightning in the regular RN DD line, and I'm about to get the Jutland.  I love the British DD's, in fact I'm planning to hang on to the Lightning after I move up.  Is there any benefit to getting the Cossack, or should I let my guineas convert to silver eventually?

If you don't have it already, there is an offer for 10 Guineas for 1$. Otherwise 6$ ain't that much either for a tier VIII premium. The new buffs she got turned her into one of the better tier VIII DDs.

If you like the RN DD line, I highly recommend the Cossack. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that I actually love playing the ship. And my Gallant captain worked quite well, which was a bonus.

Respects,

I am not a DD player by any means - but I love the Cossack, especially after the torp reload buff.

Realize that it is not a typical RN DD.  It is very much a gunboat, has engine boost consumable (only RN DD with one) and only one set (4 tubes) of torpedoes.

View LWM's review before making the decision however -

Q: Should I get the Cossack for $6?

A: Yes, yes you should.

If for no other reason than T8 Premium in the next patch the snowflake reward gets you steel.

If you like what you've seen so far in the RN DD line, then get it. You won't regret getting Cossack. It's one of the best T8 DDs. Silver credits can be gained anytime. A good T8 premium DD for dirt cheap happens once in s blue moon.

This, exactly. She is a fun ship to take into randoms. If you have Haida then you know what you lose having only one set of torpedoes. She was well worth the $1 I spent to get her.

$6 for a T8 Premium ?????

You know there are starving OPs going through dozens of Santa Crates -- getting only camo and flags.

And you have the nerve......

Go away !!!

With buying 10 Guineas for $1, could not go wrong for a tier VIII Premium DD.  Wish it was the same with WOT.

Yup, that five mega crates, only camo and flags.

Thanks for the replies guys, lots of good advice here.  Looks like I'll be getting her!  I'll stick either one of the Dunkirk bros or my British Dasha in her.  Can't have too many premiums I suppose......Thanks again!

She is one, if not, the best tier for tier destroyer.

Premium that is.

Get her, yes as she is definitely worth it.  While I play and like the Lightning more, I will play both of them as they are a lot of fun.

I missed out getting Cossack for so cheap so now I have to decide if I should spend the money on her. I absolutely adore the Tribals, but $40+ dollars is a bit much for a pixel boat I think. I almost wish they would give the RN a tier VII Tribal like Tartar or Eskimo because that would likely fit my budget more. Although doing the logical thing and allowing Haida to train RN captains is probably asking too much.
